I was just packaging btg in order to move it to community, but I
realised that rb_libtorrent is in unsupported. I looked at the details
page and it appears pressh moved it from community. Was there any
reason for moving it back to unsupported?
There's also a small annoyance with the libtorrent and rb_libtorrent
packages - they conflict. The two packages provide different libraries,
but conflict due to having the same paths. There is a package in
unsupported called librtorrent  which resolves the issue. Since
libtorrent already exists in community, the package, along with
rs_rtorrent, should be either removed or the changes should be
implemented in libtorrent. There was also some discussion about this
conflict on the bbs , which provides more detail. It appears Debian
is having the same problem . Their solution is to rename the packages
to libtorrent-rakshasa and libtorrent-rasterbar, which may be better
package names than rb_libtorrent and librtorrent.
I think it would be better if these packages wouldn't conflict, but
excessive renaming of packages is probably unnecessary.
